obama weighed down by a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-election since fdr win 323 electoral votes, sweep 8 of 9 battleground seats? as the republican party picks up the pieces and looks ahead to 2016, here are lessons hopefuls from both parties might want to keep mind. if you don't define yourself, your opponent will do it for you. romney let the president's early attacks on his personal wealth and business background go largely unanswered. romney's campaign argued after a long and expensive primary, they had to choose how to spend at the time, limited funds, and they had to claim it was better than defenses of his personal record. in the end, obama beat romney by ten points. on the economic values question that was this, which candidate is more in touch with people like you. 53% said romney's polauolicies d favor the rich. just 10% said that about the president's policies. and romney, the first republican nominee in the history of our poll to go into a convention with his personal rating under water and campaign with a painful number, just 47% of voters viewing hi

. in the last week of the election, the obama campaign paid $550 for a single ad in raleigh, north carolina. the romney campaign had to sell out $2,665. the obama campaign bought it way ahead of time. lesson two, the republican brand needs a hard look. the gop favorable rating underwater for two years. it's been nearly five years and the final poll, full poll before the election, just 36% of registered voters said they had a positive view of the republican party. 43% held a negative view. the democratic party's favorable rating in positive territory. though just barely at 42%-40%. more than 20 republican primary debates put immigration on full display. so now as the party debates to modernize, it has to repair the image. and that leads us to lesson three. demographics are destiny. romney won a higher percentage of the white vote than any candidate since ronald reagan in 1994 beating obama among white voters. by 14 points among white women. five points among independents. he won all the groups by more than george w. bush did in 2004. but he lost the election by a wider margin than john kerry

unconstitutional. no elected official should be allowed to take any kind of pledge. when boehner presented plan b, he could not even get a vote on it because it would raise taxes for the million-dollar people. this is definitely a problem. i also think that no entitlement should be part of this when it comes to the senior citizens. their social security, they do not get paid that much. >> she was mentioning the bill that the speaker had to pull because he did not have the votes, the one that would raise income over those making over $1 million per year. a news reporter from "the washington post" talked about the cliff. the minority leader has appealed to the vice president directly in a last-ditch deal to avoid a fiscal cliff. kerry reid stepped back from the talks on the senate floor. and he had yet to hear back from the. -- from them. we will show you comments in a short while ago. taking your phone calls on the fiscal cliff with two days to go, the house and senate vote in a session today. the house came in at 2:00 and they gaveled out shortly thereafter. we expect them to come back to take up

. they voted in the presidential election and re-elected a president who said that was his criteria. but the president understands this is a process where compromise is necessary. the house of representatives, controlled by the republicans, clearly has indicated that a million dollars was not acceptable to it in the united states senate. clearly, mitch mcconnell controls the ability under the senate rules of the legislation to move forward. so the president simply is saying, look. i don't want taxes to go up on working americans. i want to make sure that the unemployed have some help going forward and we need to move on those two issues. he is prepared to compromise and has been willing to compromise and, in fact, has compromised throughout the last two years. do some democrats not like that? yes, i think that is the case. i frank liam not enthusiastic about the compromise being talked about today. >> would you vote yes on it? >> we'll have to see what the final product is. but i think we need to get to compromise. we need to move forward. nobody wants to go over this cliff. going o

john kenneth galbraith. here's my prediction. what we saw in the next election -- last election is one side of the political discourse, they do not do the math. i am predicting that mathematics is going to have to be internalized for republicans to have relevance. ever again. it is kind of a situation where one of my favorite writers, the future is here. it is not evenly distributed. 2013 for us next year but the lions had another calendar. even the romans when you think about it, -- it is the ninth month so you can remix everything. the world will become more non- linear and we will enjoy it. [applause] >> we are here to talk about social movements. and the last few years have seen -- and has been a flooring of social movements. 10 years ago or more than that, there was this idea that people were apathetic and it wanted to enjoy their affluence and there was no force behind social change. in the last five years we have seen two big ones from opposite sides, we have the tea party and as a response to the crisis we had occupy wall street. at the same time, the tea party movement is seen

, christine, there are people in america, elected people who feel we should go over the cliff. >> and some, for example, howard de dean, who says how else will you cut a defense budget going up 30 years? it does give you paydown on the debt and deficit. gives the president some leverage in the first time. people in the middle class hurting, it gives the president leverage. >> not everyone is moving toward a solution. >> but most are. i want to bring in a reporter from "the national journal" he has been working the story all night, and a very slim minority of people think it would be a good thing to gefr on the fiscal cliff. there are hundreds of billions of dollars of economic activity from early tax refunds that you might not get in the economy in the early part of the first quarter, because people won't get the early refunds because it's a mess there what are you hearing about how close we are, how far away from a deal we are right now? >> certainly the negotiations that have happened through the night continue to the morning. before i came on with you, i conversed with an aide to senato

come back and do it and sworn in january 3rd and john boehner elected speaker, later that week or the next week, that's my guess having observed it several years. sometime january 10th, let's say, to pull a date out of the air, a thursday. anyway, i have no crystal ball. >> no offense. >> no pun intended, right? >> yes. but actually -- i do have one. back to you. let's quit while i'm behind. >> peter, you want to place any bets and get in on the pool there? >> reporter: as long as it's not cash on the table, we might as well. i'm thinking this thing has to happen by the same week, i think a couple of days before mike mentioned but i think that's when it's likely to happen and clear this is as mike noted all about principles right now. >> i do want to quickly on the next issue coming down the pike, the debt ceiling as mike noted, that's set to expire. they can sort of extend it moving money around but i thought bernstein had an interesting take on how the president may approach the debt ceiling. you either negotiate with terrorists or you don't. i take the president at his word
